Giveaway #425 :)


I love Saturdays before the holidays.  Lots of great things to go and do and see.  Love it.

First – the winner of the BasicGrey rub-ons is Tonya A!  I will email you.

Just a quick share today since family is together.  Wanted to show you a couple of my new favorite stamp sets.

This is a simple card (with a reallllly bad photo) of a card I made for Audrey.  It uses my favorite Maya Road set, Hero Arts Japanese Dolls and some awesome glitter pens.  Those pens really make the card come to life.  The photo does capture it well.  Actually, the pens should be called "shimmer pens"… it is a subtle, pretty look.  I just colored it right over the stamped images.

For the hair, I stamped it again and cut it out.  I stuck rolled up mini glue dots under the bangs to give it dimension.

Now… giveaway time.  I *heart* Maya Road stamps.  They come in fabulous tins and have some great sets.  So I thought I would share one here.  Just leave a comment here by Sunday at 11:59pmEDT telling me something you asked for for Christmas.  I will pick a random winner of this oh-so-cool Maya Road stamp set…


Me?  I asked for a goat.  Ha – from World Vision.  And a vacuum.  :)

Oh… and I need to enable a bit more.  Check out THESE velvet flowers from Maya Road.  I just love them – I can envision a fabulous simple card set with them!

Have a good Saturday!

    i usually get to tell my husband what i want and most of the time i even get it early…yes i am spoiled i know but my husband is good to me. this year he actually put his foot down and said he was gonna buy something on his own, and i was just gonna have to be WAIT and be surprised- like everybody else!!AAAAGGGHHH! but then i broke my camera last week, a couple days before my kids first school performance and so then this became an EMERGENCY!!so he felt so bad for me that his surprise gift for me would wait til next year—Yey! and i even got to pick out my camera, go with him to get it and even better, i even got to use it for first school and church performances…..thank you jesus!!!

    More of the magnetic folders for my nestabilities… Santa got me the rectangle set, and I thus would like another folder!

    I love the card, it’s really cute. I asked for a 12 x12 photo printer and I beleive that my husband will have it under the tree for me. He got his new TV so here’s hoping…I hope you and yours have a great holiday.

  8. I just ask that my hubby keeps his job….that is enough for me!

    I asked for alot this year…Stickles, Alcohol Ink, Cricut Cartridges, stamps, flock, glitter, and more. I had a HUGE list so we shall see what I get.

    I asked for my accounting designation certificates to be framed. Passing my accounting designation was my big accomplishment this year!!

    What a cute card. I just love the Maya Road set of stamps as well. I have a couple already. I keep the tin and alter it to give away as a gift. I usually put a greeting card set inside.

  11. Shannon Cummins

    I asked for the pink bind it all…

  12. I asked for the cricut expression machine and a few cartridges. I have been wanting this for some time now and finally got up the nerve to ask for a big present for “mom” (myself)! I think I have been a good girl this so we will see. Thank you for the chance to win the stamps. Happy Holidays to you and yours.

    Sadly, I’ve been flat out to ask for anything ! I guess if I think about it – I don’t need to ask for anything anyway I have everything I want !

  14. Marty

    I asked for a gift certificate at Hobby Lobby so I can begin to buy and use some of the Nestabilities everyone is using!

  15. Julia Carter

    I asked for some new patterned papers, Making Memories and Pink Paisley, nothing too complicated, or my hubby would get lost in the SB store!

  17. Linda Gerig

    I guess I have not asked for much but did tell one of my kids I wanted a new toaster and blender. Something I never think to get myself. Linda Gerig

    This year I asked for a bind it all! Thanks for the chance to win! Merry Christmas!

    Love the stamps! We moved yesterday in 40 below weather so i haven’t thought too much about Christmas, although we did get a tree put up today with the kids and that was wonderful. They were so excited and it helped shift our focus onto the season.

  20. sher

    I don’t think I asked for anything. Hubby usually makes good choices without me asking.
    Merry Christmas!

  21. Heather

    I asked for a tripod nothing real fancy just one to tote to my boys soccer games and the occasional photo for home.

    How can anyone not like Maya Road?? Love ‘em, Love ‘em. Thanks for sharing. I just asked that everyone in my family come home for Christmas (and that’s what I’m getting) Have a Blessed and Joyous Christmas.

    I love those Maya Road stamps! My hubby and I are off together this year (he usually works) so we will spend Christmas Eve together in front of the fireplace like we did when we were first married. That’s our present. Vicky H

  35. Linda aka Oz

    I asked for something way to big for Santa to bring me this year. I asked that my kids be together on Christmas. Maybe next year we can all be together. In the mean time a Maya Road stamp set would fit perfect under my little tree…hint hint.

  36. I asked for an Epson Artisan 700… and I got an 800! :) Hope you had a great Christmas. I’ve recently developed a crush on Maya Road. I especially love her chipboard!
